[19:55] Theoretically Speaking

Rich Gibson thoughtfully pointed out the following at tonight's NoCat Network meeting:

"In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different."

[15:59] Old-Growth Forest Preservation

Today, I signed up with the Citizens' Campaign for Old-Growth Preservation to gather 250 signatures to put the Heritage Tree Preservation Act on the November 2002 California ballot, which would legally preserve of old-growth trees on non-federally owned forestlands in the State of California. Old growth, in this case, is conveniently defined as trees that were alive in 1850, the year California became a state.

I'm doing this because the timber industry is cutting down two-thousand-year-old trees to make deck furniture. Deck furniture! I almost cannot fathom the degree of short-sighted, ignorant selfishness behind this, and become literally ill just contemplating it. California's old-growth redwoods are so beautiful, so magical, and so precious that it almost makes me want to cry, and, by the Goddess, I want my grandchildren (and yours) to be able to experience their majesty for themselves.

Please, I beg of you, if you live in California, please consider helping to collect signatures or providing other assistance to this desperate cause.

[11:36] Zen and the Art of Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle Maintenance

Mommy, why don't I feel safer yet?
